Tottenham are two EFL Cup wins away from ending their long trophy drought after seeing off Championship side Stoke City.
A thunderous strike from Ben Davies and Harry Kane’s 16th goal of the season sealed Tottenham’s place in the EFL Cup semi-final as Stoke City were consigned to a 3-1 home defeat.
Spurs dominated the first half and Gareth Bale put them ahead with a glancing header on a miserable Wednesday evening.
Bale was withdrawn at the break, leading to concerns he may have sustained another injury, and Jordan Thompson equalised with Stoke’s first shot of the tie eight minutes into the second half.
Spurs were not to be denied a place in the last four, though, as Davies thumped in from distance before Kane sealed a first win in four games as Tottenham moved to within two games of winning their first trophy since 2008.
